Backcountry skiing in the Cascades is one of the most untapped resources in the lower 48 states. In the Leavenworth area we have the Icicle Canyon and Highway 2 corridor. The geology gives us perfect access to steep couloirs or hippy powder runs right from the car. You can literally step out of your car and start gaining vertical which means that you can ski maximum vert. right to the cold six pack stashed in the car.
At Leavenworth Mountain Sports we have a full service Backcountry Ski department. Anything you need from skins, skis, probes, avalanche beacons not to mention the line of skis from Black Diamond, K2 and Karhu.
We are excited to debut Black Diamond’s new alpine touring and telemark boots this season. LMS rents all of the equipment we sell. For around $45 you can demo skis, skins and boots before you buy. We will refund any rental fee with the purchase of that item.
I will try to keep up updated as the season moves.
